In each nucleus of a human cell, the total length of DNA contained in it is about 6 feet long. Now, the size of a nucleus in a human cell is only 6 microns in width. A micron, otherwise called a micrometer, is 1 one-millionth of a meter. To put this in perspective, the average human hair is about 100 micrometers in diameter, and a grain of salt is 500 micrometers in width, give or take.  So how are 6 feet of DNA packed inside such a tiny space? Find out with DNA Dan.------------------------------------------Join DNA Dan each month as he dives deep into the world of genetics, genomics, DNA, and the future of precision genomic medicine.

Today we understand much more detail about the structure of DNA. It turns out that Watson, Crick, Wilkins, Franklin, and the many others involved gave essentially the correct answer about the DNA molecule and how it is structured. ------------------------------------------Join DNA Dan each month as he dives deep into the world of genetics, genomics, DNA, and the future of precision genomic medicine.

Rosalind Franklin played a pivotal role in the discovery of the structure of DNA. Among scholarly circles, Franklin remains an enigmatic figure and the subject of much controversy. What is not under debate is that she made enormous contributions to science, and she was taken from us much too soon.------------------------------------------Join DNA Dan each month as he dives deep into the world of genetics, genomics, DNA, and the future of precision genomic medicine.

Now the race was on to figure out the structure of DNA. It’s a rather complex story involving many different scientists, primarily in the U.S. and England. ------------------------------------------Join DNA Dan each month as he dives deep into the world of genetics, genomics, DNA, and the future of precision genomic medicine.

In this episode, part 2 of the discovery of DNA, we come to understand how DNA was first isolated and demonstrated to be the molecule responsible for heritable traits. In the early to mid-19th century, biologists assumed that heritable traits were transmitted by proteins in cells. ------------------------------------------Join DNA Dan each month as he dives deep into the world of genetics, genomics, DNA, and the future of precision genomic medicine.

Since prehistoric times, people have noticed how children tend to resemble their parents and grandparents. People also recognized that some human diseases tended to run in families as well. Learn why this happens and how it was discovered. What is the substance in cells that carries the heritable trait information? Further, what is the structure of this substance?------------------------------------------Join DNA Dan each month as he dives deep into the world of genetics, genomics, DNA, and the future of precision genomic medicine.
